Lansinoh Manual Breast Pump
I was first introduced to Lansinoh via the lanolin nipple cream I was given to try out for PWT. The midwife suggested I bought some and was impressed when saw that I already had a tube!
Obviously I waited until breast-feeding was established before trying to express milk.
The Lansinoh Manual Breast Pump is really easy to set up, with a diagram and simple instructions. The step-by-step guide runs you through exactly what you need to do to express most effectively and comfortably. There's a ComfortSeal cushion to create a secure seal and the ergonomic handle and lightweight design mean that it's easy to use with one hand.
I also like the fact that the Laninsoh pack contains comprehensive information on how and for how long to store expressed milk.
Made from 100 per cent polypropylene, the preferred plastic for breastmilk storage, the Lansinoh Breast Pump plus the two bottles it comes with bottles are Bisphenol-A (BPA) free.
The first use was an odd experience, however I did manage to express enough milk for one feed – not that Harriet has taken easily to the bottle! However, with the pump I feel confident that whenever I have to be away from Harriet, I'll have expressed milk to leave with her. On the odd occasion that Harriet sleeps through the night, I have used the breast pump to relieve the pressure of my full breasts.
I also use the Lansinoh Breast Pads. I tried many brands before settling on these. The Lansinoh pads have two adhesive strips (unlike many brands which just have one) which means they rarely become unstuck. They also keep the moisture away from the skin, preventing my nipples getting sore. The pads rarely feel heavy or milk-logged, unlike most and are very thin so fit neatly into the bra and do not make my breasts appear bigger than they already are!
Lansinoh Manual Breast Pump is available from Amazon.
